The Museum of Bali has been opened to the public and has become a tourist destination in the city of Denpasar. And a great place to visit in Bali, especially for the Denpasar City Tour. Come to the Bali Museum and learn more about the traditions of Bali.
The Museum of Bali in Denpasar was built in 1931 and designed by architect PJ Moojen. The Museum Bali Denpasar was inaugurated on December 8, 1932. The exterior walls, courtyards, and gates are designed in a distinctive style, like a royal castle in Denpasar. There are four pavilions at the museum complex in Bali. All pavilions at this place represent various districts in Bali.
In the north area, there is a pavilion for Tabanan Regency. The collection displays dance equipment such as dance costumes, all kinds of masks for dance, puppets, keris (traditional Balinese sword) for Calonarang dance, and also some ancient sculptures.
In the middle of the complex is the standing pavilion of Buleleng Regency. The building is typical of the style coined the northern Bali Temple. The pavilion has a collection of clothing, including traditional Bali fans.
The last pavilion, which is located at the main entrance, is where you will see towering Kulkul (traditional equipment to call the people), as well as various other prehistoric collections. You can see the equipment used by humans during hunting and planting a garden, the cultivation period, and the period of metal. While the top floor of this pavilion features a collection of Balinese art.
Museum Bali is conveniently located at Jalan Major Wisnu in Denpasar, Bali, and its location is in the heart of Denpasar. On the north side of the building there is Pura Jagatnatha (Temple), while opposite Museum Bali is Puputan Badung (Badung Courtyard) and a statue of Catur Muka. The development of the Bali Museum begins with the idea of how to care for , preserve, and maintain Bali's vital cultural heritage. This initiative is based on the feeling of worry that the existence of such a phenomenon of cultural erosion, thus making cultural heritage extinct, will lead to the loss of photos and documentation.
One building in Bali Museum Denpasar to explore Balinese culture.
The collection of objects stored in the Museum of Bali can be classified into a collection of prehistoric objects such as the Grave Stone (sarkophag), a collection of objects that are derived from historical eras such as clay and bronze statues (statues of Hindu and Buddhist), and ethnographic collections of objects such as Keris (balinese weapons), Kain Endek (Balinese weaving), and equipment for religious Balinese ceremonies (sangku, cecepan, and Sidakarya Mask).
Today the museum comprises several building pavilions, including examples of the architecture of both the palace (Puri) and the temple (Pura), with features like a split gateway (Candi Bentar) and a warning drum (Kulkul) tower. Exhibits are not always well presented, and only some have useful English labels, but it's a good place to see authentic, traditional painting, masks, wood carving, and weaving before you consider buying something from the craft and antique shops. The main building, a new two-story structure behind the entrance, has a collection of prehistoric pieces downstairs, including stone sarcophagi and implements of stone and bronze.
Upstairs are examples of traditional artifacts, including some types still in everyday use. Look for the fine wood and cane carrying cases for transportation of fighting cocks and the tiny carrying cases for fighting crickets. The northernmost pavilion is in the style of Tabanan palace, and the central pavilion, with its wide verandah, is like the palace pavilion of the Karangasem kingdom, where Rajas held audiences. The southern pavilion is in the style of a Buleleng palace and has a varied collection of textiles, including Endek, Songket, Prada, etc.
